I never went anywhere for Spring Break. In fact, back in the day with a Term System, we never really had much of a break at all. We kind of ended our Finals one week and then started classes again the next week for the next term. And we kept going until the second week of June!
Hence, when I see news reports of student's using their student loans on exotic vacations around the world, I cannot relate at all. I certainly can be envious, but not relate to it in any way.
But a pretty good way to spend a Spring Break would be as a member of the top 16 in an Indoor Track and Field event in the nation. Or one of their coaches getting honored!
